International Day of People with Disability is celebrated internationally on 3 December each year, to increase public awareness, understanding and acceptance of people with disability and celebrate their achievements and contributions.
The theme for this year is “Building Back Better: toward a disability-inclusive, accessible and sustainable post COVID-19 World”.
Today’s a great day to take just a few minutes out of your day to educate yourself on what it means to navigate today’s world with a disability.
